Extra Large Opal Pendant
A beautiful slice of cultured opal with flashes of color ranging from brilliant blues and greens with splashes of purple to a rich goldenrod with veins of deep brown traversing the stone. This stone is held in an organically textured copper frame and geometric hoop. The copper has been treated with a patina to deepen the color to better compliment the stone.
Pendant is approx. 2.5" wide on an 18" chain.
Metaphysically, Opal is said to be a stone of inspiration, enhanced creativity and imagination, and spirituality. Some say that opal may allow one to remain unnoticed when desired. This stone may let you connect to deep emotions, feelings, and desires that may have been forgotten. This may foster a more spontaneous and uninhibited self, with freer imagination or more vivid dreams.
The physical and visual properties of cultured opal are almost identical to those of natural opal.They are generally much stronger and more stable than natural opal, making it less vulnerable to heat, cracking, or other damage.
Chain has been sealed with protective coating to prevent skin discoloration from copper contact. To extend the life span of the coating and the stone, do not wear your jewelry in water or very sweaty situations (showering, saunas, hot tubs, working out, etc.)
Amelia's houseline of jewelry and original druzy stands is heavy on the crystals, gems, and minerals with a dose of geometry and natural elements. As a life long collector Amelia always has a pocket or small tin on hand to stash the perfect shell, the best dried fern, or a really nice stone. Each piece of jewelry is one of a kind and crafted by hand. Many incorporate organic objects sealed in copper through a process called electroforming. This process is a combination of conductive metal, electricity, and time. Copper molecules slowly adhere to the chosen areas of an item and can fully encase it or form around it. This process combines science and art in way that perfectly reflects Amelia's view of the world.
